In Summary

  • Joshua Chisanga, Jacob Ojee, Darwin Mukidza and Eric Kerre scored a brace of tries each as Mukidza kicked 11 conversions to guide Simbas to victory.
  • Kenya biggest win before Saturday’s match was 96-3 against Nigeria in 1987.

Ruthless Kenya Simbas on Saturday touched down 15 tries and 12 conversions to crush Tunisia 100-10 in their Rugby Africa Gold Cup duel, their biggest even win, at Rugby Football Union of East Africa grounds.

Left wing Jacob Ojee crossed for four tries as eighthman Joshua Chisanga, right wing Darwin Mukidza and blind side flanker Eric Kerre touched down a brace each to propel the Simbas to their largest ever victory in their history.

Mukidza stroked over back 11 conversions while centre David Ambunya, scrum-half Samson Onsomu, man-of-the match centre Leo Seje, Martin Owila and Steve Otieno helped themselves to a try each.

Simbas led 46-10 at the break.

Ben Hamouda and Ashif Dhif managed the consolation tries for woeful Tunisia, who suffered their second defeat in the Gold Cup, having also fallen to Namibia 41-7 in Tunis the previous weekend.

Kenya, who had opened their campaign with a 33-33 draw with Uganda two weeks ago will meet Senegal in their third match in Saturday next week at the RFUEA grounds.

Kenya biggest win before Saturday’s match was 96-3 against Nigeria in 1987.

“It’s a good victory but the battle has just started,” said Simbas coach Jerome Paarwater.
